The River Behind the Scenes

Here's the behind the scenes feature on the making of our recent animation The River, to The Arrogant Worms' song River of Snot. I don't know about you but I love watching the behind the scenes on different projects. There is so much that goes into the making of these, especially when it comes to stop motion animation, and I think it's helpful and interesting to get some of that insight for one's own projects, or to see how and why certain elements came together. Hope you enjoy and let me…

once upon a blue moon

I've decided to change to name of my short from "Washed up" to "Once upon a blue moon" (that title might well change again), since the action is now set in outer space.  

I've been busy making a spaceship from a garden water spray bottle with some deodorant sticks and some cheap plastic binoculars for boosters…

Madame Tutli-Putli

I saw an animation the other day that I found to be really inspiring.

the film is "Madame Tutli-Putli". The film used cg for the eyes of the protagonist though I'm not sure about the other characters but there's a big chance that they did that.

The CG'd eye of actress Laurie Walker is just mesmerizing and surely did it affect the whole film. Those eyes took my attention and started clouding my head with question about the material and the how they may have formed the facial…

Stop Motion and 2D animation Hybrid.

Our professor asked us to do a Stop Motion and 2D type animation in one film.

I found the idea to be really interesting. I would love to work on this asap. 

But upon researching I really haven't seen anything like this. 

I would like to ask if anyone here had any experience on filming similar type of film or if you happen to cross upon one on the Internets.

I don't see much of a problem on having this done, but tips and suggestions would be greatly…

washed up

I've made a mold for my robot hands, I'm just using whats quick and and available so it's made out of silicone.  Probably not ideal as its going to be a silicone on silicone mold, but I'm assured that as long as I spray on lots of J wax (or whatever release agent in the cupboard) it should be okay.

I didn't mix some of the catalyst into the silicone well enough so it didn't go off.  Luckily one of the more experienced maintenance crew was able to save it (you can see the colour…

washed up

We're just winding down on a new series at work and its becoming unusually quiet, so I came up with a really simple idea for a short mini series.  The idea was to make it as simple as possible, one set and a couple of easy to make characters.

My idea was about a robot and a crab living on a small remote island, so I quickly mocked up the robot character.…

Howdy - I am following up on a very old thread regarding Tom Baker - the very skillful animation model maker that used to advertise his wares in the back of certain monster magazines.  I wonder if anyone has found Tom - he dropped out of the scene rather abruptly.  I knew him back in Charlotte when I produced a TV show called THOSE WERE THE YEARS on Channel 3 WBTV.  We ran a film contest and Tom won with some unusual animated shorts.  He also created a 30 second TV spot in black and white…

the haunted carousel

The old carousel sits quiet now, in darkness, the shining coats  

of the wooden horses seem to breathe as wood creaks and the wind screams  

through broken seams around the doors 

and floor boards move beneath the weight of a carved and cantering ghostly herd,

a clock tower strikes the midnight hour, 

suddenly the old carousel begins to move spinning…

Has anyone cast from polyamide 3d prints?

Started by Joshua Liebling in CASTING. Last reply by Joshua Liebling on Thursday. 2 Replies

Polyamide plastic will apparently break down with water exposure, so this rules out gypsum molds. I'm curious if anyone here knows whether two-part silicone putty or other material would work with polyamide? I know this can be done with PLA. My end…Continue
